I cant believe some people say this is on par with Nando's! Its much much better. This was worth the trip alone. Its a shame I dont live close otherwise i would eat here once a week easily. I went to the store close to the CBD, You should 100% try this whilst in Brisbane

The chicken is just as good here as it is at Nando's, choose here if you have the choice and support a locally owned restaurant, not a chain!

I tryed Jamaican Jerk Chicken at the markets in Miami and it was some of the best chicken I've had. The chicken was spicy and sweet and it was cooked to perfection. The sides were delicious as well. If you are near it is well worth stopping by and trying some jerk chicken.

Simple healthy food with variety and a choice of spice. We phoned our order in and staff were very accommodating. Decent size servings. We found lots of chicken in our wrap which can be rare as many places pad it with salad or rice or hot chips! Will be back for sure. PS even if you love really spicy (which... More

Really inviting place. We found something for everyone on the menu from a burger for the kids to the goat curry I came back for. And FESTIVALS! If you have never had them you have to try them. Loved the whole experience.

Recently dined at this restaurant and sampled the half chicken and chicken burger. I the taste was fantastic and service absolute tops. But being a regular of Nandos I have to ask: why is the portion so small? The half chicken was about the same size of the 1/4 chicken at Nandos... And why was the chicken not as moist... More

Description
The term 'jerk' is the name given to the traditional method of Jamaican cooking in which meats are marinated in a unique blend of herbs and spices, and then char grilled to succulent perfection. The care taken to prepare the 'jerk' marinate, and the time the meat is allowed to marinate in partnership with the char-grilling are essential for producing the amazing flavour and aroma that 'jerk' is renowned around the world for. At Jamroc we follow these timeless traditions and recipes handed down from generation to generation in order to produce such a special and unique flavour thats guaranteed to leave you craving more. Whether you like it the traditional way off the bone, or in a gourmet burger or wrap the choice is yours!
